SMC Harbor Commission 2/15/2017 agenda includes an informational update on the RV Park lease at Pillar Point Harbor. MCC submitted a comprehensive letter on long-standing issues at the RV Park in Jan 2015. (Since then the lighting fixtures have been replaced with more dark-sky-compliant ones.) In 2016 the City of Half Moon Bay issued a Compliance Order to address the lack of Coastal Development Permit for construction of the RV Park in 1999. The staff report includes links to background documents.
Rent due the Harbor District for the 4.6-acre ocean-front property under the 25-year lease signed in 1998 is either a minimum base amount or 3% of gross annual revenue, whichever is greater. The annual payments have rarely exceeded the minimum base rent (currently $25,000) by more than a nominal amount.
